Hydrophobic IOL MicroPure 1 Hydrophobic IOL MicroPure 2


Glistening-free hydrophobic acrylic IOL

Most of the hydrophobic IOLs on the market are developing glistenings after implantation which can impact on the vision quality.

Glistenings are favored by:

  • the cast-molding process (compared to lathe-cutting process)
  • environment changes (dry conditioned and implanted in an aqueous environment)
  • the lack of control of water content

iPure is guaranteed 100% glistening-free thanks to:

  • the lathe-cutting process instead of the cast-molding process
  • its storage in water to avoid conditioning changes during implantation
  • the control of water content at the equilibrium

Injection system for microincision

iPure can be implanted through a 2.0mm incision with the Medicel Accuject system.
